I was recently invited to attend a media event at the new Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steakhouse on International Drive in Orlando, Fl. I have always been a fan of DF. I used to go to the Del Frisco’s when it was a Del Frisco’s on Lee Rd. They have since changed names but its still same owners and they kept the same menu. Yes I am talking about Christner’s Prime Steak on Lee Rd. So in essence we have 2 Del Frisco’s in town so to speak but with 2 different names of course.
Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steak House on I Drive features a sizable, diverse wine list of more than 1,200 labels, to include a number of notable verticals from both old and new world producers. With two floors that include two bars, four private dining rooms and a picturesque patio, Del Frisco’s Orlando boasts over 400 seats. They also have private spaces and facilities available for special events and group parties/functions.
We started off with wine, then the appetizers, then the wonderful steak entrees, and finally desert. The service and food was impeccable.
The Shellfish Plateau features chilled Alaskan king crab legs, iced jumbo shrimp, fresh oysters on the half shell, chilled crab claws & traditional garnishes.
The Petite Crab Cakes were nice chunks of crab meat and Cajun lobster sauce sitting on top of a delicious basil brioche. This was my favorite starter!
I love a good lamb cooked properly, and the the Lamb Lollipop’s with a pomegranate mint glaze were pretty amazing. It was spiced right and cooked grilled to perfection.
The Prime Strip Steak had a wonderful seasoning on it and melted in your mouth. It was charred on the outside and cooked to a perfect medium rare on inside. My favorite of the steaks.
The Prime Rib Eye Steak was amazing! Spiced just right! Just enough marble and fat to make this a wonderful steak.
Some of the evenings desserts included a Lemon Cake with lemon buttercream icing and lemon glaze, Chocolate Souffle Cake with a warm molten center chocolate cake, vanilla ice cream, and raspberry sauce and a Butter Cake with butter pecan ice cream, fresh whipped cream & caramel sauce. All of which were delicious.
I am a big fan of steaks. Quality steaks that is. And I can’t wait to go back for a nice steak dinner in Orlando!
Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steakhouse is open for Dinner from Monday through Saturday from 4:00 pm to 11:00 pm and Sunday from 4:00 pm to 10:00 pm.
